I confess to not getting the benefit of this.  To me /opt says
"Third-party stuff".  If I want to drop random non-packged stuff on my
system, that's what /usr/local is for.  I see no problem with a .deb
dropping stuff in /opt, if that's where FHS says its contents ought to

Why would the Lord give us so much quickness of movement unless it was to
avoid responsibility with?
